    To any Minolta/Sony A-Mount shooters out there,
    Thought I'd use a lifeline and ask the group for advice. I primarily shoot 4K video and use a couple Sony A6300 bodies for that. However, I picked up a Sony A-57 SLT not long ago, just for hobby's sake but would love to know some opinions on the best cheapest glass. The higher end glass purchases go for the A6300's so I need to stay on a low budget. I have already picked up a Minolta 28mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.7 and 70mm-210mm f/4 - great lenses but would love to get a wide angle and maybe a better macro (the 70-210 does Macro at 210mm but it's not that impressive IMO).

    Thanks!
    Jeff

    If you are not aware of it, there is a website devoted to Sony cameras and they have a giant database of lenses and first hand reviews.

    For what it's worth, the A57 came with a decent kit lens didn't it ? 18-55mm or something close. It's a good lens. I had it on my a55. I have an a77 mk1 now with the kit lens (16-50mm f2.8) and a G2 70-300. They both meet my needs very well.
